When you walk into a place and instantly feel the magic; that is the paradise created by Silvinha. The setting, the service, the food, the chilled pace, in fact every moment was a delicacy. I can’t recommend this place highly enough (although I also want...More

Having lunch at Silvinha should be on everybody’s list while vacationing in Trancoso. This three tables “ shack “ is not exactly easy to get to( expect a one hour bumpy car drive ) but it is totally worth it. You will be welcomed by...More

There is a single set menu, which is nice and has interesting flavours. The problem is if you want to go again, because the food is always the same, no variation whatsoever. There is a nice atmosphere, although it could do with some updating.

It is not easy to find, but force yourself and ask why it is absolutely worth it! A mix of flavors in a unique location! It seems to be in another world!

Like the celebrated Berkeley restaurant this spot is run by an iconic woman, you will have what she is cooking, and it's good! It's a little hard to find and you'll want a reservation. We had stewed fish, rice, lentils, vegetables and an assortment of...More

Silvinha's is a revelation - the best locally-souced home-cooked food of our trip. Reservations are essential - you cannot simply turn up (we saw at first hand how Silvinha politely but firmly turns away anyone arriving with no reservation). She has 3 tables only -...More
